Stayed here with my son after a trip up Route 1. The interior tile walkway sounds so loud when late night guests arrive, it is surprising anyone sleeps. There was blood and ... whatever on the bed spread, then noticed more on the wall and ceiling. Too grossed out for a photo. Dead plants lined the interior walkway where the housekeeping staff stacked the sheets and left them for hours so it looked like a crime scene with sheeted body and all. Ugh! Avoid!

Stayed April 2014, traveled with family
